Dr. Nichole Hertel

As the saying goes, “I wasn’t born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could!”  In fact, I could say the same thing about Fort Bend ISD. J  I am a proud alumnus of Lantern Lane Elementary, Quail Valley Middle School and Dulles High School.  This this year marks my 23rd year in education, 15th year as a teacher and 37th year in the Missouri City area.  I have taught at the elementary, high school and college levels and have degrees in Journalism, Secondary Education and Curriculum and Instruction (University of Houston and Houston Baptist University).  I live in Missouri City with my family and four hairy, four-legged children. 


I love being a teacher and am most passionate about helping develop critical thinkers, good writers and exceptional people. 


Please make sure your email address is updated in Skyward.  I like to send weekly emails to students and parents.  


I am very happy to be at Elkins for a seventh year teaching English in the best department on campus and teaching junior English for the sixth year.    Let's venture forward and Go Knights!  :-)
